    Sleepless Night

    Tonight,
    I'm sleepless again
    like a burning candle, flickering alone
    in the dim light,
    and racking my brain,
    not for a way to go, way up north,
    to Alaska though the rush is always on.
    It's as clear as the flowing water
    in a stream at spring time
    that I wasn't born with a silver spoon
    in my mouth,
    and never ponder
    on the chance of carrying some yellow metal
    in my mouth
    to meet my maker
    when it's time to push up the daisies.
    Well, speaking of those pretty lasses,
    if only,
    with a stroke of genius,
    I'd come up with more wondrous verses,
    as resplendent as those nature's daughters
    in delightful yellow dresses
    to brighten up the gloomy world of some admirers,
    it might be more sunshine
    than to hit the goldmine
    and live happily ever after for eternity.

    Playing a Game of Badminton


    My friends,
    If you don't mind at all,
    I'll give you a morning call
    since there's no feathered friends
    coming to say hello,
    since there's no more sunshine
    to kill your sorrow
    in this winter world.
    Let's play a game of badminton.
    If you forget to bring your racket,
    don't worry and be happy.
    As long as you never forget
    to bring your laughter,
    loud as thunder,
    I'll carry my smile,
    sincere as sunlight.
    Maybe,
    we're not perfect as professionals,
    but we'll be cheerful as a monkey
    and healthy as a puppy.

    If Silence Is Gold


    If silence is gold,
    that must be the reason why
    the sky is so gray that I want to sigh.
    Seeing that there's not a marigold
    to be seen in late November,
    how will you comfort a lamenter?

    Thanks, Danik, for dropping by. Yes, here we usually play at least five games or two hours at a time. I usually lose one or two kilograms for two hours.

    Morning Glory in Late November


    I can't believe my eyes~
    it's already late November,
    and you're still blooming ravishingly
    like a morning glory
    that I just came across
    while passing through a village,
    no less poor than remote.
    I can't help but admit~
    you're still beautiful;
    nevertheless,
    I doubt whether
    it's as much meaningful~
    putting on your indigo purple dress
    and shuddering in the sea breeze
    at a time when
    there's no butterflies or bees around.
    And I have to apologize to you
    for being neither a secret admirer
    nor a careful gardener.
    Fleeting
    as a silk of smoke floating in the air,
    I'm just a passenger.

    The Beauty of Poetry


    Supposing
    life can be compared to a journey,
    then I think
    I have to hurry,
    not to print money like crazy,
    but to jot down in a book of poetry,
    the beauty of life stories
    that's unfolding along the journey.
    Don't you ever ridicule me
    when you find me
    trudging in the falling blue
    or feeding on the morning dew!
    Since time immemorial~
    do I have to remind you~
    none could've carried earthly belongings,
    their wistful yearnings,
    with them to push up the daisies
    except for
    leaving behind the beauty of poetry,
    the joy for eternity.

    We can always depend on books and booze as the most dependable and best company.

    Thanks, Danik, for the timely boost while the wind is howling like ghosts and demons outside in this part of the world.

    The Glory of Yesterday

    The glory of yesterday
    is as hard to find
    as a sunny summer day
    at a time when the wind outside
    is wailing like a banshee.
    And the sky is nothing but murky
    with deep sorrow,
    you might just as well
    forget about the rainbow
    and tomorrow
    because tonight
    must be a starless night
    as well as a dreamless night.
